Can an EZM Main circuit breaker device, for example a EZM3400CB, be used as a tap box to feed another load downstream?

Main Circuit Breaker devices


The EZM Mains (Circuit Breaker and Fusible Switch types) are not suitable for use in a meter center for back feeding applications. Line and Load markings in these mains are indicated on their wiring diagrams, preventing these mains from being used for backfeeding. An option would be to use a EZM Main Lugs Tap Box in the line-up for back feeding larger loads located down stream to the meter centers. The Wiring diagrams in EZM Tap Boxes have Line and Load markings omitted, allowing them to be used for back feeding applications.
